Omar Offendum .. My Hip Hop "Khayoo!" is on REVOLT & I am psyched up to have him be part of it.
I had a great conversation with this unique talented artist who always spreads positive messages in his lyrics & tunes.
Given that he was born in Saudi Arabia & raised in the US - he combines Arabic & English beautifully, not to mention that he's the only person I know that takes the poetry of a legendary poet such as " Nizar Qabbani" & translates into his own lyrical hip hop waves.
Omar spoke about how Hip Hop is a culture & how it should unite people despite being Arab or not.
His highly awaited first solo album "SyrianamericanA" is supposed to be released in the next 2 months.
Offendum dropped a live verse for us - better check out this brotha!
